Current strategies for the surgical treatment of severe ocular injuries
Languages of publication
Initial management in cases of suspected injury to the eyeball does not differ from the one adopted in other ophthalmic diseases. Only once the preliminary diagnosis is confirmed, a treatment strategy should be planned. It is important to take into account the general condition of the patient, the condition of the eye, and the possibility of its preserve. If a patient requires vitrectomy, small incision surgery is the preferred technique. In the case of total eyeball injury, optical centers of the eye lose their translucency, making examination of the eye fundus, diagnosis and treatment impossible. There are several options in such situations. They include: delayed treatment, open sky surgery, endoscopic surgery, and temporary keratoprosthesis. 7% of all open globe injuries are associated with the development of endophthalmitis. The management strategy in advanced endophthalmitis involves performing an urgent vitrectomy.
